These matches are great, I haven't had a chance to see if they are waterproof but they work good. Their a great addition to 72 hr kits or just to go camping with.
I tried one just to see how good they were, for creating a fast fire it's good, haven't tried it under wet conditions but will find out later.
A MUST HAVE FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS!
We live in a humid climate year round. Having waterproof matches on hand gives us peace of mind that we can start a campfire, grill or light candles and kerosene lamps. Several packs of these matches are in each of our bug out bags as well.
Most people think that regular matches are fine, but go dunk yours in water and dry them, see if they work, they won't. These ones will work when it's wet out, just make sure you have good dry tinder too, otherwise there's no point!
A Must For BOB
This item is cheap and a must for your BOB. It doesnt' take up any room and is easy to use.
Great in Humid Places
These really do work under humid and wet conditions. Keep them in your BOB and at home. Get the orange waterproof match box and you're all set.
I bought the exact thing at another store and paid more for them. I wished I had checked the Ready Store first. These work great.
A must have for your storage!
When these waterproof matches arrived, we immediately put a box in our new Kelly Kettle bundle kit! The rest are stored with our other fire starting materials. It's comforting to know we'll be able to get a warm fire going in any emergency situation, regardless of the weather! Highly recommend~~Minimal investment for maximum peace of mind!
I have these in all my kits
You NEED Matches!
You NEED to have good matches to have on hand in an emergency. I would recommend these waterproof mateches to anyone! They are great, store well and light when needed. What more can you ask for? Oh, the price is right too!
Another "must have" goes into my emergency kit. You never know when it will come in useful.
These are a great purchase! I keep these stashed several places! Great for camping!
These matches are something that you shouldn't be without! Plain and simple!!
Good to know I have
Now no matches are 100% waterproof but these are pretty darn close. If they do get wet, spread them out on a paper towel to dry. These MUST be in any/all 72-hours kits.
Great in an emergency or just for camping
Easy and simple product to throw in with other purchases. Nice to have some for the many times you need them.
Honestly,I bought these matches as a filler to get the free 100 dollar shipping discount because i was a little short of a 100 dollar order. But they have came in real handy .These fit in your car or camping equipment or just about anywere . They work great (remember to support the head of the match when stricking so you wont break it off) .
great addition to storage
Very low quality wood
I bought these as well as the higher quality UCO matches from amazon.com to test. The box that holds these matches easily came apart - luckily I bought a container. I ran the match over water and sure enough, it lit when struck. The problem with these is the match stick easily breaks when lit. It's easily visible that the grade of wood was not strong. I tried striking multiple matches most broke. The UCO matches I bought on Amazon were cheaper, longer, more durable, windproof and had 15 second burn time so if Ready Store can sell something similar, I'd def buy.
